Stone Setting jewelry

Stone Setting jewelry

Without the art of stone setting, the dramatic gemstones featured in most fine jewelry would be forlorn. The irony is that, done properly, stone setting in and of itself is not the intended focus. The true goal is to present the gemstone in a way that most flatters it, without dramatizing the method in which it is secured.

Master setters are confronted with the challenge of securing diamonds and gemstones in the least invasive way. The objective when stone setting is to use the minimum amount of material necessary to secure the gem. In doing so the setter must provide maximum durability while the gemstone jewelry is being worn. You need only look at a simple engagement ring with stilted fine wire prongs to understand the importance of this art.
